I came here from ASUS ROG community cuz there nobody want to help about problems... So i'll try to explain as clean and fast as possible... So, lets begin

I bought brand new laptop ASUS Republic of Gamers STRIX SCAR 2 GL704GW 5 months ago. Configuration is - i7 8750H, 115W RTX 2070, 16GB DDR4, 512GB SSD and 1TB HDD
So, i descovered like 2 months ago that i have extreme cpu overheating problems, at idle temps are crazy - up to 65 sometimes hit 70 and during gaming it is never lower then 98 celsius... sometimes it reches 105, most of time it is on 98-100 celisus. Okay so thats the problem right? So what i did is that i opened laptop, cleaned everything from dust, opened cooling system, repasted whole system using Arctic Silver MX-4 2019 edition (gpu, cpu, vram, power units etc...) and saw no diffirence at all. I really dont know why is so hard to cool down that i7 8750H.
So what i did next is that i installed Intel XTU and undervolted cpu's core and cache voltage offset by -100.6mV and still didnt get 1% of improvment after REPASTING, CLEANING, UNDERVOLTING... I dont know what's wrong with this CPU. Please help me

Thanks forward for your help! :)

Hmm, you might have done a lot more than was necessary. Regarding the Intel XTU undervolting trick, can you try and go lower that is increase the amount of undervolt you're doing to the CPU to see if you end up with a BSOD?

Are you on the latest BIOS update for your motherboard? Please flash the BIOS manually as opposed to using a third party app, if you have BIOS updates pending.

Maxmimum undervolt that is stable for mine i7 8750H is -120mV... Everything beyond that will crash only during hardcore tasks such as stress test etc... So I stayed at -120mV and didnt notice ANY IMPROVMENTS.
Also i didnt update my BIOS to the latest version... Does it matter or? cuz i dont know too much about bios...

I updated my asus fx504gm-es74 bios then couldn't boot it had to send back to asus.
So think long and hard on that.

I think i remember your earlier thread.
Did you try making sure to keep it elevated off of whatever you sit it on?
